Why Taking A Couples Therapy Retreat Can Be The Best Way To Improve Your Relationship

A therapy retreat can give couples the chance to take a break away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, in order to help improve their relationship.

Having a strong relationship is one of life's greatest assets. It provides intimacy, comfort, strength and a core foundation to help push yourself in life and to be truly happy.

Whether you are married, engaged or in a long-term relationship, taking yourself away from the stresses of children, housework and your career can help remove a burden which may be stopping you from concentrating on what is most important; your love and support for one another.

If you are just looking to get away from the “rat-race” for a weekend, or to repair your relationship, a couple’s therapy retreat can be a healing and relieving experience. Every relationship is different, which is why Reconnect UK offer a variety of counselling retreat packages, with each package flexible enough to fit the requirements of a couple.

Retreat venues set in peaceful & therapeutic environments will enable couples to feel relaxed and in their comfort zone when engaging in exercises and activities that will help them strengthen their bonds. We have a range of beautiful venues on our books, from idyllic, rural bolt-holes in the lovely Suffolk countryside, to light and airy retreat centres, just a stone’s throw away from the heart of London.

A typical couples therapy retreat with us will last over the course of 2-3 days, and we will work with you straight from the beginning in order to generate a schedule that correlates directly with your goals and needs.

These retreats can be useful for couples in all stages of marriage. While some couples wait until they are on the brink of divorce to attend a retreat, others sign up for a retreat to prepare for marriage.

It is important to seek help early. The average couple waits up to 6 years before looking for help for relationship problems. Putting this into perspective, half of all marriages that end do so in the first 7 years, meaning the average couple lives through with unhappiness for far too long.

Pre-marriage counselling is highly recommended. Having a conversation with a trained counsellor can help to identify roots of future marital distress and prevent them from escalating into real problems in the future; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Still, naturally couples tend to start to look for counselling retreats when they begin to feel that their relationships are beginning to fall apart.

Don’t give up on your relationship! Giving up is the only sure way to fail, and great things take time. Contact Reconnect UK today, so we can help you ignite the spark in your relationship once again.
